    I have only Norton Utilities (2001) and Clean Sweep installed, not the antivirus program.

    Thanks Blackspear,

    Will this be problematic when I upgrade versions of programs like SeaMonkey and Firefox etc.? Thanks again.

    No problems, they will just remain in the list, that's all.

    Cheers :D

    You cannot pare the list from within the program, but you can remove obsolete entries within the registry. As with any registry modification make sure you have a back up and are prepared if something breaks. This seems to work fine for me though.
    The list is stored in the UserAgentList in the format of agent1 "\" program1 "|" agent2 etc.
    HKLM/Software/Eset/Nod/CurrentVersion/Modules/Imon/Settings/
    Here is a sample with IE and Firefox
    Mozilla/4.0\IEXPLORE.EXE|Mozilla/5.0\FIREFOX.EXE|NOD32 Update\NOD32KRN.EXE

    To remove Firefox for instance "|Mozilla/5.0\FIREFOX.EXE" would be removed. Note only one "|" is removed.

    To remove IE from the list "Mozilla/4.0\IEXPLORE.EXE|".

    In your case you would want to remove either a leading or following "|" as in "|Symantec LiveUpdate/Lucomserver.exe" or "Symantec LiveUpdate/Lucomserver.exe|"

    Most programs do not rename the exec program so unless the program switches to another "agent" it would not be an issue.

    Thanks for the information, Firepost.

    That's a bit more trouble than I had hoped, I may poke around in the registry a bit, but I probably won't worry about it unless it becomes a problem. I will back up first if I decide to attempt to edit the registry.

    I was going to also mention you could just reinstall and the list would be created new with only the active programs being used placed but you read it before I got back:)

    I just wanted to report back and say thanks to FirePosts clear instructions I was able to find and delete the old version of Lucomserver from the client compatibility list. Also, there were no problems with duplicated entries in the client compatibility list when I upgraded to the first testing release of SeaMonkey 1.0a today, so all is well.
